    Warning If you don't like reading rants about books especially for ones that you liked or think you're going to like then you aren't going to like this review because I've honestly never been pissed off at a YA book before If you do like reading rants about books well then this should probably be pretty darned entertainingOK so let me start off by just saying I really tried to like this book honestly I didI tried up until the very last page to have hope that something was going to happen that would redeem the entire thing for meBut it justDidn'tHappenInsert sad face hereMaybe I should blame my OCD tendency to finish a book no matter what Because even when I absolutely can't stand a book I have to finish it I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing I really did consider DNF ing this book about halfway through because I just could not take much of Lenzi's weak character she was literally making me sad and angry at the same time but then I thought well maaayyybeeee she'll get better maybe she'll have some kind of major revelation and turn into this super awesome character transforming into a strong confident kick butt kinda gal who can stand on her own two feet without a man to validate her entire existenceBut alas It was not to beAnd I can honestly say probably than I can for any other book I've read that I quite literally HATED this one It was absolute torture to read and the only thing that got me through to the end was knowing that I'd get to write this outraged and rant astic review afterwardsBrief SummaryLenzi's dad has recently died committed suicide because he couldn't get rid of the voices in his head Now 16 Lenzi is starting to not only hear voices but see things too Her musician boyfriend Zac can't help her Alden the strange guy she meets in a graveyard one night tells Lenzi that she is a Speaker she can speak to lost souls and help them to find rest in death by freeing them from the problems that keep them bound to Earth Alden is her Protector he protects her from Malevolents violent spirits who don't want to be helped but who could potentially possess Lenzi's body using it to take out their rage or revenge But Lenzi has no recollection about her past lives as a Speaker and now there is a really dangerous Malevolent who wants revenge on her for something Lenzi can't even rememberNow seriously with a plot synopsis like that I really thought this book was going to knock my socks off Well read below before you make the same mistake that I didMy Thoughts So the number one reason why I could not stand this book was because I could NOT stand Lenzi The girl absolutely annoyed the living crap out of me and it was downright painful having to read from her whiny immature point of view Yes I can understand her frustration and fear after finding out that she's supposed to talk to the dead and help them out of Earthly purgatory but really? If I had just found out that I could talk to dead people AND it was up to me to save them from eternal damnation I'm pretty darned sure my number one concern wouldn't be which boy I'm currently dating For realNow this seriously drove me crazy because all Lenzi ever did was A Drool over how gorgeous and beautiful Zak and Alden were or B whine and complain about how sucky her life wasThat's it the girl had no other thoughtsOh but she can fold origami lots of origameeee Because you know the main character has to have a hobby to make her seem smart and interestingMeanwhile the immaturity levels reached astronomical proportions I'm talking whining and complaining galore And when she does finally try to be the mature adult? She gets about as far as donning a pair of tan slacks and cream colored turtleneck yes that is an actual description of what she wears I'm not making this up because clearly you have to dress like a flipping geriatric to appear grown up Slap on a pair of Velcro Easy Strides and Lenzi is good to go TerrificOK so on a serious note my main beef is that I thought the message Lenzi sends out to readers was absolutely horrible I found nothing about this character that was respectable admirable or worth emulating she was lazy whiny vapid annoying willingly ignorant and worst of all completely and desperately dependent on the acceptance of a guy no matter how controlling or abusive to validate her existence and her sense of self worth I'm sorry but that is a crap tastic way to present a character If you're going to write about a self deprecating girl who constantly belittles and demeans herself you need to at least let her eventually come to the realization that she doesn't have to debase herself and that she really is worthy of respect and healthy male attention But if this never happens? If the main character never learns to respect herself? How am I the reader supposed to respect her? I honestly wish that Lenzi had developed into a strong and confident character But this never happened And it made me sad Really it did And then there's Reason Number Two why I didn't like this book ZakWhom I affectionately like to call Zak the AsshatWhere do I even begin with how much I loathed this crappy excuse for a love interest?Zak the Asshat was hands down the biggest jerk wad I think I have ever read about And what's worse he was passed off as actually being in the running for Lenzi's heart I mean if this is any indicator of what a cruddy little weasel he was the guy got drunk on page 40 tried to feel up Lenzi at her father's GRAVE and then abandoned her in a cemetery at night in a bad neighborhood on her freaking BIRTHDAY Say whaaaaat?? Oh you heard me right Which brings me to what I hated most about this book the dysfunctional abusive and completely NOT romantic relationship between Lenzi and Zak So after everything that Zak puts her through Lenzi goes right back to him so she can appease her mountain of insecurity essentially turning into a total doormat and making out with the ground he walks on for the next 20 something chaptersBecause you know God forbid she lose this absolutely perfect specimen of male chivalryYes I know she goes off with Alden to do her whole Ghost Speaker thing but here's what grinds my gears Lenzi never gets a clue about what a dirt bag this guy really was and what really scared me was that the author never seemed to have a clue either because even by the very end Lenzi was still spouting about how Zak was such a cool guy and her only real friend Well NO no he wasn't Actually he was a controlling possessive alcoholic and even dangerous and abusive psycho And I'm not OK with that never being addressed I'm NOT OK with that kind of a person being passed off to potentially young and impressionable readers as being romantic or attractiveTo hammer home my point there is even one point at the end of the book where Lenzi gets into a car with drunk Zak told you she's not the brightest crayon in the box and tells him it's all her fault that their relationship failed and that she's a freak who isn't good enough for him this is the same guy I'll mention one time who abandoned her in a bad neighborhood at night on her birthday and possessively stalked her to the point where the police should have been involved Umm NOT OKSide Note If I had to hear Zak say babe at the end of one sentence the book would have gotten hurled across Starbucks Not really it was a library book and I wouldn't want to knock over anyone's triple venti macchiato but you know in theory Seriously give me a fa reaking breakOh but wait ladies and gentlemen there's douche baggery ahead Let me introduce you to Alden Lenzi's second love interest whom I affectionately like to refer to as Asshat 2 Alden is Lenzi's Protector who keeps her safe from all the big bad Malevolents Except for the fact that he never tells her anything keeps her completely in the dark and did I mention that he is TURNED ON by Lenzi's fear and pain? Yes I kid you not it actually says in the book that Alden Asshat 2 is turned on by Lenzi's fear and pain I'm sorry but isn't that the definition of sadism? Why yes yes it is And how lovely it's being passed off as hott sexy and romantic This is the part where I take a long deep breath and try not to FLIP THE CRAP OUTAlrighty so added to all this wonderfully disturbing twistedness the book was also full of some of the most bizarre and ridiculous one liners that I've ever read which illicited reactions running the gamut from bursting out laughing hysterically to slapping my forehead in total frustration to looking up from the pages like someone had just run across my yard wearing nothing but a thong and a cowboy hatOh I know you're curious now Well here are a few little gems that I couldn't resist mentioning Even lifeless he was hot p80 OooooooK that's a little creepy I wasn't addicted to Xanax but I could certainly become addicted to Alden p116 I literally burst out laughing for a good 5 minutes after reading this Should I shake his hand or kiss him good night on the cheek? Maybe I should act like Spook and just lick his face p138 No comment I'll just let you soak in the sheer awkwardness of this quoteWe also have a wonderful villain in the story named Smith Smith is a crazed lunatic from the 19th century who is out to whack Lenzi due to a century old grudge he has because Lenzi jilted him in some past lifetime Totally by coincidence Smith was the only character in the book I liked Finally and this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine in YA literature I HATE when the protagonist comes across as mind numbingly vapid and completely uselessNow I don't want to beat a dead horse because I've already ranted about Lenzi but I'm still not quite over her character and how she came across as being 115 pounds of pure dead weight Throughout the whole book Lenzi is just thrown around by events outside her control and by the people in this case the boys around her and she reacts no real thought or action on her part changes the plot all that much so she's basically a pretty albeit whiny little puppetAnd what's worse? It comes across as though Lenzi's entire sense of identity is wrapped up in whether she has a guy to fawn over This bothers me big time because not only is it annoying for me to have to read about I think it sends a really bad message to readers in general I mean if you look at this story Lenzi basically lets herself be a doormat for Zac to wipe his dirty boots on for the first half of the book and the second half of the book is Lenzi pathetically trying to be a good Speaker just so she can impress Alden and live up to his expectations AND she's also cheating on Zak who yes does win Asshat of the Year but still I was not at all impressed with our girl Lenzi throwing herself at Alden when technically she was still with Asshat I mean Zak So yeah I don't like any of that Why couldn't she have wanted to be a kick ass Speaker to make herself happy to increase her own self confidence based on what she's capable of and not what some dude thinks of her? Not to stand on a feminist soap box but I'm just saying I would have liked to see Lenzi be independent strong willed and confident without the whole I'm nothing without a man attitudeIn the end Lenzi made Bella look like a combo between Einstein and Daenerys Targaryen in comparison yes THAT is how awful and pathetic she was Sigh OK so after that tirade it's now time to say something positive about this book It's a policy of mine that no matter how much I disliked a book I won't leave a review without stating at least ONE thing that I did like about it So I will say that the action scenes in this book were really well done and the concept of the Speakers and Protectors freeing the Hindered and fighting the Malevolents was a really good one I thought it was interesting and creative Honestly I did I'm not just saying that to avoid getting the stink eye numerous times for being a total jerk about this bookSo to wrap up this really long review I will just say that there were lots of readers out there who adored Shattered Souls I totally respect their opinions and know that my review is only one of many And even though I didn't like it that doesn't mean that you won't I can't recommend this book myself but I would suggest checking out other reviewer's opinions of it to see whether it's something you want to get into NOTE Also read what my girl Jennifer had to say in her review I really couldn't agree with her and I'm actually confounded that out of 280 reviews no one has really bothered to mention this disturbing aspect of the book that she so accurately points outFINAL NOTE To fully appreciate my feelings and reactions to this book it's best to read my Goodreads status updates in fact if I didn't get all of this off my chest while I was reading the book I'm pretty sure I would've had an aneurysm no joke So a big thank you to Goodreads for helping me to maintain my sanityLea LC's Adventures in Libraryland
